Bedlam in Bayside
Police said three men were breaking into cars parked at the Adria Hotel on Northern Blvd. when a witness called 911.
A police helicopter circled overhead in Bayside, Queens as cops on the ground scoured the neighborhood looking for the suspects. The witness, who didn’t want his name used, spoke to 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria.
“I heard noises, looked through the fence, saw guys breaking into the car, went upstairs and made [the] 911 call,” he said, “And then police came and all hell broke loose.”
Two suspects tried to get away on foot and one tried to flee in a green van that had been stolen earlier in the day, D’Auria reported.
The van actually smashed into two police cars and nine police officers were injured in the incident. All the injuries were relatively minor.
Police have two suspects in custody.
